Mia, 3D Modelling Student

I learned so much from my mentor here at Mages. I learnt about the pipeline for character creation and the software, mainly ZBrush. The overall experience at MAGES was great as the staff & student are so friendly. Its like family here, so it was really easy for me to adjust. My final project was a Goddess and I loved creating the dress for her as it was flowery & flow and as I was very happy here, it reflected in my design.
